Hur det hela började en gång


Skrev i ett engelskt forum och orkar inte översätt just nu :
This LO is very precious for me as it is about how it all began, my “craftiness”.
It is about my grandmother who passed away last Christmas and a television show that she made for Swedish Television (SVT) and that I was also in.
She always had those ideas about crafty things to do with small means and SVT wanted to make a series of children programs about her little home made dolls “Strumpfilurer” and their houses and furniture.
The program was called “Kartonghuset” and was first sent in 1975.

Some of the journaling says (freely translated):

“During my childhood I have always done crafty things with my grandma, all from “Strumpfilurer”, via knitting, sewing to oil painting. “

“The trip went to Stockholm, and it was so exciting, too exiting when the wheel of my grandmas bag fell of and rolled in under beneath the train. “

“It was funny, boring, hard, exciting and an experience to make a television program recording.”

“It was my grandmother, Erik Fichtelius [later became a big profile within Swedish Television], Magnus and me Petra.”

“The idea was all my grandmothers. She always had those ideas of making things with no or small means. “

Soo I wanted to decorate with things that could be found at that time, in 1975. soma hama-beads, some knitted flowers, a news paper clip that made the announcement in the paper that the show was on, and last but not least, I made a miniature “Strumpfilur”-doll, the same as we made in the show.

The show is on Play-TV and can be found here if someone feels nostalgic or curious

How neat that you've made one of the little dolls and documented this memory.

Awesome layout! Did you make the crocheted flowers too? I've been doing some. Yours are really cute. I loved reading about your grandmother.

Gud va roligt! Är för ung för att ha sett programmet men fascineras av hur mycket lugnare barnprogram var förut. Måste ha varit spännande att vara med.

Fortsatte din mormor inom SVT i någon form?

Även jag gillade Kartonghuset som liten *smiles*

Jo, jag såg den här layouten i din visningstråd på Scrappiz å tänkte genast Oh my...!!! jag tycker den e så himla läcker.

Den är både enkel och avskalar och dekorerad samtidigt... myyycket snygg.

Nämen otroligt!!! Ett av mina favoritprogram, men ingen av mina jämnåriga kommer ihåg det! (De var inte lika pyssliga som jag antagligen..) Ibland tror jag att jag drömt att jag sett det, så jag är så glad att få bekräftat att det verkligen fanns! Det satte igång skaparlusten minsann! Så roligt! Ska genast bli lite nostalgisk! Tack!! Och layouten är så läcker!
